Random Star Wars Books Updates

Posted By Mike on May 27, 2009


Got some random Star Wars books covers and descriptions to pass along via our friend, and regular source, Eddie of StarWarsTimeline.com. Some of these you may have seen or read about previously, but they're all good upcoming book reminders none the less...







Amazon.com has posted the cover for Star Wars: 1,000 Collectibles: Memorabilia and Stories from a Galaxy Far, Far Away. The listing does not provide the release date for the upcoming paperback from Steve Sansweet and Anne Neuman.

Product description from Amazon:

"Star Wars: 1,000 Collectibles takes the reader on a journey through cool and kitsch, from toys and costumes to life-size statues made of LEGO bricks to consumer goods such as candy, clothing, toothpaste--and much more. Drawn from the largest private Star Wars collection in the known universe, this stunning treasure trove of memorabilia and colorful anecdotes mixes fun with nostalgia, delighting both the casual fan and the serious collector. Since the first Star Wars film opened in 1977, George Lucas's epic space fantasy has become not only one of the most successful entertainment franchises of all time, but also an obsession for collectors around the globe, who have spent more than $15 billion on Star Wars merchandise.

These collectibles range from the offbeat--C-3PO tape dispensers, fan-made bantha pinatas, and Darth Vader popcorn poppers--to the everyday--Boba Fett cake pans, Yoda PEZ dispensers, and "Cream of Jawa" soup. Here for the first time is a chronicle of the constantly expanding, all-encompassing, often-surreal lifestyle of collecting Star Wars--filled with incredible stranger-than-fiction stories from the galaxy's foremost collector."







Amazon.ca provides the cover for Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Ultimate Battles Visual Guide, by DK Publishing. (Hardcover)
Release date: July 20, 2009

Product description from Amazon:

"Featuring images, illustrations, diagrams, and an inside look at the ferocious, fire-storm battles featured in The Clone Wars television series, Star Wars®: The Clone Wars: Ultimate Battles highlights the weapons, spaceships, strategies, and spies who made the Clone Wars an epic time in Star Wars history."







Amazon.ca also has the cover for Star Wars: The Clone Wars Ultimate Battle Sticker Collection from DK Publishing. (Paperback)
Release date: July 20, 2009

Product description from Amazon:

"Star Wars: The Clone Wars Ultimate Battles Sticker Collection Features some of the best dramatic artwork from the battles in The Clone Wars! See droids and Jedi clash like never before! More than 600 stickers on 96 pages allow young Padawans to decorate books, lockers, lightsabers, and more."






We continue on as Amazon.com offers up the cover image for Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Official Episode Guide: Season 1 by Jason Fry. (Paperback)
Release date: October 29, 2009

Product description from Amazon:

"This episode guide was written by Jason Fry, author of the New York Times bestselling Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Visual Guide. Packed with details and exclusive behind-the-scenes information about the first season of The Clone Wars, this book is a must have for fans of all ages. It contains 192 pages of full-color illustrations, a perforated season one poster, and exclusive behind-the-scenes commentary by Dave Filoni (Supervising Director) and Henry Gilroy (Head Writer)."






Even more from Amazon.com with the cover image and description for Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Secret Missions Book 1: Breakout Squad by Ryder Windham. (Paperback)
Release date: September 3, 2009

Product description from Amazon:

"The first book in an original novel series!

Immediately following the destruction of the Separatist battleship Malevolence, a small team of Clones and their Jedi General are sent deep into the dangerous Wild Space to uncover the secret of the mysterious ship’s origin. This novel is written by acclaimed writer Ryder Windham, who has authored over 50 Star Wars books."







To round out our updates from Eddie, Amazon.com is displaying the cover for Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Holocron Heist on its page for Captured.



Now we move on to some updates from our buddy Ewan at SWBooks.co.uk...





Amazon.com has listed the paperback re-print of Matt Stover's Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor for February 23, 2010. This is over two months after the UK release of December 3, 2009.


Star Wars: The Clone Wars #4 from Karen Miller is listed on Amazon.com for a February 23, 2010 release. (Paperback)


Last, but certainly not least, Sue Rostoni has confirmed the upcoming Lost Tribe of the Sith eBooks on the SW.com message boards. (You may notice author Troy Denning popping up in the boards as well!)


Many thanks to Eddie and Ewan for the heads up! We'll keep you posted when we have further updates.
